He basically breaks it down as it is disrespectful to him to have Renee bash his dad. He knows what Junior did was wrong, but he still wants a relationship with his father and his mother should respect that. But, Renee is too emotional to see past her own blinding rage and won’t hear anything that AJ has to say about how he is feeling. I say this every season, but Poor AJ. He really would have been better off being raised by gypsies or German Shepherds or something.
It’s Big Ang (Yay!)! We are at her house when we get our introduction to Love. Yes, I know that ‘Love’ is a stripper name. Or, that ‘Love’ is the name a former prostitute (or current prostitute) might use in an effort to go straight. But, I kind of (kind of) like Love.
I can honestly say though, that it is NOT because she is Big Ang’s friend. I personally think Ang can do better in the friend department. I kind of (kind of) like Love because she is willing to admit to multiple counts of attempted murder on television. I don’t in anyway condone murder. I just laughed out loud (a little) when she said that she stabbed an ex in front of his mother and didn’t look the least bit contrite even as she says it was horrible. It was as though she were saying, “hasn’t everyone?”
I felt bad for his Ma, but he had it coming.
I suspect Big Ang and Love love each other because they share a fondness for plastic surgery and big boobs. But friendships have worked with a lot less than that in common.
Since Ang is recovering from foot surgery, VH1 gives us a gratuitous shot of her toes. Why do reality show producers think we want to see surgeries or the results of surgeries? I think I may be the only person in this world that believes that the human body is disgusting. That disgust permeates through the entire existence of a human being; being a child (snot, poo, putting weird things in your mouth and nose (my brother once put a battery in his nose and was surprised when his nose bled), having a child (there are fluids and smells involved), taking over the care of a child (children are full of snot and poo and they don’t wash their hands unless you tell them to) And then there are all of those gross things that human beings do on a daily basis.
I get that the human body is beautiful and the things it can do are miraculous, but come on! It’s gross and I shouldn’t have to see the remnants of a toenail removal or a large flap of Renee’s skin and fat being set upon a surgical table all for the sake of entertainment.
Sorry, Gasmii. I got carried away thinking about all of gross stuff that I’ve seen on television in general. Big Ang’s toes were pretty much the last straw. But, that wasn’t the point of this scene. The point of this scene was so that Big Ang(Yay!) could assure us that she is happy about AJ getting help for his drug problem and for her to play peacemaker between Carla and Renee.
Am I the only one who thinks that Jennifer Graziano is playing her hand? I loved what she did with the first two seasons (minus CousinSuckUp’s addition to the show). I thought the reunion, at least the first part, was genius. But now I feel like I am watching Basketball Wives. They are not even pretending to be following a different pattern here. Fight, meet up, talk it out, fight some more, meet up , talk it out, fight some more. The only difference is that when the women on this show claim to be peacemakers, I actually believe them, unlike Shaunie and her ilk on BBW’s. Love actually does not love Renee. Renee heard/started a rumor that Love slept with Junior and has had it out for her ever since.
